A Gift For Grandpa

This year my Dad was home from Spain around Father’s Day

He was in fact at our house for the royal wedding

And The FA Cup Final

It was perfect timing for him to sit down with William

My football mad son

To watch his first live football match

William and Grandpa share a love of the beautiful game

My Dad has for as long as I can remember supported Manchester United

And for the longest time I did too

My best friend and I met the United team in the early 90s

We met Steve Bruce, Bryan Robson, Ryan Giggs and Lee Sharpe

Who kissed me on the cheek

Something I have never forgotten

We met them in a hotel in Luton when they were playing there

I followed United through the Cantona years

Loved Roy Keane

And of course, David Beckham

I truly admired Alex Ferguson

And read every book about his life and career

I loved international football too

I remember watching every game of Italia 90

Crying with Gazza

I remember the community spirit through Euro 1996

When Scotland did so well

I remember the heightened senses as we lived and breathed the games

Dissected the teams, the coaches and their strategies

I understand the passion William feels for the game

The infectious enthusiasm for football that he shares with my Dad

His Grandpa

It was something very special for my Dad

Something that made me emotional giving it to him

And seeing him sharing it with my son

His grandson

Reading some of the stories

Behind the beautiful game

And one of the very best teams in the world

Me remembering those glorious euro years and Fergie’s Fledgelings

Open-up the Personalised Manchester United Football Book and reminisce the most triumphant wins and defeats, through the press coverage they’ve gained over the last 100 years.

Read all about record-breaking singings, on-and-off-pitch rows, the cup wins and defeats. Founded in 1902, football fans will reminisce their fondest memories of their favourite team!

A Glimpse Inside…
Beginning in 1909, this Manchester United Football Book features the club’s entire league and cup successes, both domestically and in Europe. In 1909, United won their first FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Bristol City.

In the proceeding 100-odd years, the club hasn’t looked back and today is the most successful English club of all time. This football book illustrates United’s rise – from humble beginnings to one of the wealthiest and most widely supported clubs in the world.

It includes a further ten successful FA Cup campaigns and 17 of their 18 league titles. Four league cups are in here, too, as well as coverage of the 1968 European Cup win and the two Champions League victories in 1999 and 2008. Endless successes aside, the Busby Babes get a lot of limelight and so do Fergie’s Fledgelings.

It made me very proud to see my Dad and my son bonding over football

Both when reading this book

And when sitting together watching William’s very first live game

These are moments that will stay with me for always
